  1. Hi there, I purchased the London landmarks pack via Orbx Central for MSFS2020. Installed this, and the loaded up the sim & it seems only some landmarks have been added. Example, the Emirates cable carts and Battersea Power station are now there but BT tower is missing, London Eye is missing, some of Canary Wharf is missing. It is all showing as installed in my MSFS content manager but it's clearly not I have attached screenshots, any help would be great Thanks Perry
  2. Not only the center of UK's Capital but also the wide area around is worth to discover. Sightseeing starts from London City airport EGLC:

  7. Views like selden or not yet seen of the magnificent London scenery enhanced via the Orbx-addon: Just milliseconds before I crashed into an invisible wall:
  8. Hello guys, I don't know if I am the only one experiencing this issue. I have stutters when using London Landmarks to the point that it becomes unflyable. I have no issues with TE GB South on X-Plane, it runs butter smooth. But the topic here is MSFS. I am sending the video attached so you can see what I am experiencing. This is MSFS vanilla, with Orbx EGLC and London Landmarks, the CJ4 is used without any mods (don't mind the flying, it is just for demonstration purposes). The video is unlisted on youtube, as it is only for debugging pursposes, and not to expose the product. Time line: (The resolution used is 3440x1440p) 0:00 - London landmarks ON + EGLC ON (Medium settings), endless stutters, even when not looking at the city, impossible to land, even on Medium settings, which I find very poor. 1:42 - London landmarks OFF + EGLC ON (Ultra settings) - No stutters, smooth, I don't run the sim on ultra, this is just for demonstration purposes. 5:30 - New York, Photogrammetry ON (High-end settings) - New York was put there just for good measure, to show that the issue has something to do with Orbx objects on London Landmarks, not with the amount of details and textures.

  9. Coming from direction Heathrow airport, cruising over London City to land at London-City airport just before total darkness:
  10. I couldn't resist to get MSFS as my 4th flightsim next to P3D, XP and AFS2 and try it out at once on one of the most detailled sceneries sofar via the Orbx enhancements:
  11. The Albert Memorial in London used to look good, but since the latest MS patch, it's now buried in a generic building. Has this (or anything similar) happened to anyone else? I didn't think they changed the scenery in the new Asobo patch, but I don't know what else could have caused it. Installation: FS2020 / Patch 2 Orbx London Landmarks (with update).
  12. Cruising over London and landing at the City airport EGLC via Twin Otter in Flybe livery, Sim = XP11.50 - Scenery = TE GB South + Airport EGLC:
  13. Was flying around London and noticed that 22 Bishopsgate is the same height as Asobo's Shard. In reality, Twentytwo is like 35 metres (100 feet) shorter. Flew over them and you can see there's no difference on the altimeter while I'm flying a few meters above them as you can see in the attached screenshots.
  14. After a comment I made in another post, I did some measuring. The central span on Tower Bridge is 60.96 metres. The wingspan of the 787 is 60 metres. (@olderndirt, this is for you) Gotta be worth a try. Setting off and turning round from Heathrow (Orchestral music rising in pitch. Discordant violins screeching with increasing intensity) Did he make it? Will he survive to next week? See the next thrilling installment at a big screen near you!
  15. Scene opens in blaze of light and sound. Orchestra sound like they're going to explode. We can hear a heartbeat pounding at 80Db. The screen comes in to focus and . . . All the alarms are sounding. The passengers (a small select band of kamikaze war gamers) are singing a cheery song, and then, on the main screen - (Fade to black, silence) Six months later. Captain - "Ladies and Gentlemen, we are approaching the scene of the mysterious events of August 2020. At approximately 15.35 that day, a scheduled Boeing 787 Dreamliner was on it's way over the Thames at a perfectly reasonable 50 feet cruising altitude, when according to several witnesses there was a loud fizzling raspberry sound, and the aircraft simply vanished from the sky. There were unconfirmed reports that a strange pattern appeared briefly in the clouds, that was read by some as "Ctrl", "Alt" and "Del". And one witness claims to have heard eerie laughter wafting down from the sky (but this was later discredited after he failed a breathalyser test)" "Ladies and Gentlemen, if you'd now please tighten your tin-foil helmets and ensure you have a firm grip on your complimentary rabbit's feet, we will shorty be passing through the trans-dimensional gateway back in to the real world, where we will continue on to your original destination. We hope you've enjoyed (and survived) your journey so far. Thank you for flying Crackpot Airlines" I almost got the 787 through. I'd slowed the sim speed right down and after about the sixth attempt I was real close, but the combination of the systems apparently carrying on running in active pause mode, which meant that when I came out of pause after checking my positioning it always leapt in one direction or another, and the fact that slew mode (well, really, how else did you think I was going to get through there?) doesn't seem to be completely linear meant that I just couldn't do it in the end. Mind you, after all that pushing the A320 through was a doddle, no fancy tricks required. Wonder if there's an Antonov available yet? <grin> (And yes, RIP Peter Green. A man for whom a guitar wasn't an instrument, but an extension of his soul)
  16. A few other shots taken during my recent sillines. Some in Docklands - And then a few around her maj's des. res.
  17. So, having tackled Tower Bridge in the "normal" manner, I thought I'd go for something more adventurous. East from EGLC then turn round and back up the Thames - Well, that didn't go too well! One of the things I really miss, but that I hope will turn up before too long, is the ability to record a flight in MSFS. I've gotten in to the habit in XP of doing a flight and concentrating on the actual flying, and then going back over the replay to pause, take shots etc. Makes things much smoother, particularly with flights like this. At the moment, it's a question of flying and switching between cockpit and external views in flight, hitting active pause and hoping for the best. Does rather take the edge off your concentration though <grin> So, let's try that again. Off from EGLC and turn round again Here we come Wonder if I can get one of these with floats? Ok, last time. Off we go - This time I went upstream and came in from the other side. Figured I'd have more time to get straight and settled that way. And it worked! Ok, I'll stop with this particular hobby horse for now.
  18. Been exploring all sorts of fascinating places that I can't show here, but just been back around London again. In two parts as I got a CTD and had to start again. Not had that before, and I'm wondering if it was caused by the new skins I installed, including the one for this Pitts. I'll have to remove them all again and see if it recurs. Anyway, came in towards Docklands from the south (from Gatwick) - Yeah, yeah, I know it's a cliche, but what's a boy to do? beginning to get to grips with the drone cam. Like others have said, an X-box controller makes it great fun. Mine is a cheapo knockoff, not recognised so I've had to set up my own key mapping which may or may not have been a good thing And then the sim crashed. Just vanished. So I restarted from EGLC, and I'll put those up in part 2. The menu is the developer's option. Handy for a frame and other stats counter (not shown in these shots) and also to allow a change of planes.
  19. So, after my CTD at the end of part 1 I restarted from EGLC in a standard livery version of the Pitts and went back to resume the tour. approaching Docklands from the Eat this time Yawn! This is where the sim crashed last time. Shame, I couldn't get quite the same angle and shot I was trying for this time round - the light had changed just a bit I see Orbx no longer advertises in Piccadilly Circus! Newly shrunk Post Office Tower (showing my age now) below Now this was interesting. A decent RAH and Albert Memorial at last Thought I'd break out the drone cam for a closer look In the previous shot and this next one, the plane hasn't moved, just the camera Long time since I lived or worked in London. Lots of stuff I don't recognise. No idea what that modern building is But I recognise Chelsea Bridge ok (or is it Battersea Bridge? I think the latter is plainer?) And Battersea Power Station (wot, no pig?) Ah yes, the funny farm And then it crashed again! Obviously need to do some investigation into this. (and @Iain Emms, I've sort of lost track on which landmarks are Orbx and which are built in, so I hope I haven't transgressed too much in this post)
  20. I’m a new customer of Orbx, I bought the London scenery for the new FS2020 through the market place in that game, I didn’t know about Orbx Central, should I have purchased it from Orbx themselves ? Am I better off using Central in the future for Orbx scenery’s ? And is it possible to transfer my London purchase to Orbx to Receive the updates which don’t seem to be available on the FS2020 marketplace ? Regards Graham
  21. So I purchased Orbx Innsbruck scenery and the South UK scenery and I noticed that all the trees which aren't in the sun are this yellowish brown color. In the picture I posted you can see the trees in the shade of the mountain. They look very ugly. Has anyone experienced this?
  22. On my last flights in the "ORBX-country" a few pictures were taken. I would like to share with you On this flight I started from London City Airport in TrueEarth GB to a small sightseeing flight. Flown with the AVRO Tutor (Freeware by Nigel Richards). Many thanks to @Doc Scott for his great tip! The next flight took place with the Commander 114 in Switzerland. More precisely, near Interlaken. As you can see it was very foggy, it was flown with real weather ... Small aircraft has its charm, no question. But a large aircraft, like the Airbus A318, is a bigger challenge The picture shows the final phase of the landing approach in LOWI Innsbruck on runway 26 ... Innsbruck. Always worth a trip!
  23. X Plane. VSKYLABS VSL B-8M Gyrocopter. Wonky's Blog! 50. The VSKYLABS VSL B-8M Gyrocopter Project add-on for X-Plane 11. At last the Chance to fly in VR a Gyrocopter over London. Even Tower Bridge opened up for me as I approached. At the eight-minute mark.for those that can't watch it all. Should I call it a shopping basket with blades on top?" The VSKYLABS VSL B-8M Gyrocopter Project is a highly accurate lightweight Gyroplane flight dynamics and handling simulation, designed for X-Plane 11.
  24. Just a few of London with xplane 11 and TrueEarth regards EMM
  25. Hi hoping someone can help me.. The other day I downloaded and installed Orbx England seeing as it was on offer and I was a bit bored of the dull bland colours of Just Flight VFR. Today is the first day I've actually been able to test it and despite it looking brilliant and making low level VFR more interesting I am missing certain things.. As you can see I took off from London City but sadly there's no London, there's only standard FSX autogen buildings over the area. I've also noticed the same at the Dartford Crossing where the QE2 Bridge should be, there's AI cars crossing over the Thames where the bridge should be but they just drive over air. For the life of me I can't find any lighthouses either despite me flying all over Eastbourne.Also There's random autogen over certain airports like this also seen at London City. As I've mentioned, I used to use Just Flight VFR and Revolution X but I've now removed these from my system and the Orbx sceneries are installed into the scenery library and moved their priority down to below that of my addon scenery. I've also tweaked my settings to exactly match those that are recommended in the readme. I've also run the update that was available on FTX-Central and I've also migrated my system. I don't know if maybe I've missed some files because I only had the following: FTX_EU_ENG_05_SCENERY FTX_EU_ENG_06_CVX FTX_EU_ENG_07_MESH FTX_EU_ENG_08_CUSTOM Am I missing the files numbered 1, 2, 3 and 4 or is this usual? Scenery has never been my strongpoint I'd really appreciate any help.. Thanks, C. Receipt: 590f44dfdeb47
